Bough Down

Editor's note: More than four years after her husband's suicide, Karen Green has put together a transcendent book about surviving him. Aesthetically, it's as good as anything. Formally, it's like nothing else, with a brilliant mixture of art and prose poetry. We've excerpted below the book's beginning — including its cover, a work of art in itself — and we're also reproducing some images from "How On Earth," a series of paintings Green made in which text from the book is a part of the landscape. —Adam Plunkett






















How on Earth


Big Enough


The Sun Is Downing


Whose Woods These


There Is No Refuge in Architecture


At Last the Gradual Light
